Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hershey District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum is skills-based and hands-on so that students learn a good amount of content and are able to interact with what they are learning. For instance, in math students use manipulatives to understand patterns, shapes and spatial relations as well as quantitative concepts. Operational ability is emphasized and developing fluency in basic solving problem is a goal of early math learning.
For students in middle school, language courses are offered in both French and Spanish. Once high school is reached, students may choose between French, Spanish, and German and may take courses throughout all of their four high school years. In a similar fashion Music classes are offered; they expand in options and opportunities as students progress in grade level and experience, terminating in high school offerings such as Advanced Placement Music Theory, Concert Choir, String Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra, HS Concert Bands and Women’s Choir.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of World Language Courses
In countries like Norway and Germany, English is taught from the first grade on. In the U.S., most language courses begin no earlier than 5th or 6th grade. So what benefits do world language courses contribute to our students? Is it worth putting them into these language classes? Younger students normally have an easier time picking up languages and accents as compared to older students. Not only this, but learning another language and about another people group encourages students to be more accepting of other peoples and cultures. It also encourages good communication skills and the understanding of both verbal and non-verbal communication, as these vary from culture to culture. Beyond these benefits, learning other languages helps and stretches the brain to be able to perform other skills that would otherwise be more difficult, such as critical thinking and creativity, since students are forced to think outside of how they normally would to speak in another language.
